Connie Mae Franks, age 77, of Stanton, started her journey to heaven on Friday, March 18, 2022.
Connie enjoyed putting her puzzles together and doing yard work; especially tending to her yard and cutting her grass. She also loved watching scary movies that would scare her. A great memory the family has is that Connie would always have to have her curtains closed at all times so no one could see in. Her favorite time of the year was “her Christmas” because the whole family would come and pack her home full. She will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.
Surviving Connie is her daughters, Trina (Paul) Kellams of Stanton; son, David (Sherry) Hunt of Stanton; daughter-in-law, Stacy Hunt of Stanton; son-in-law, Jeff Hall of Big Rapids; grandchildren, Andrew (Alisha) Kellams of Stanton, George Kellams of Stanton, Ricky (Chelsey) Kellams of Lakeview, Chris (Ashley) Kellams of Gowen, Stephanie (Aaron) Finney of Edmore, Barbara Berndt of Commerce Twp., Steven Hunt of Midland, Jozlynn Hunt of Stanton, Heather Hall of Big Rapids, Aaron (Ally) Palmer of Longview, Texas, and Brittany Palmer of Greenville; many great grandchildren; one soon to be born great-great grandchild; sisters, Syvilla (Herb) Harrison of Heathsville, Virginia, Linda (Eddie) Heglar of Kannapolis, North Carolina, and Anne Walsh of Newport, North Carolina; brother, Wayne (Lucy) Ketner of New Port, North Carolina; cousins, Linda McClymont and Tammy McClymont both of Romeo; and sister-in-law, Carol Williford of Ionia.
